Jan 10, 2018 01:35AM ● By Kevin
There are many reasons to get out and about in Cape Coral, especially since there are so many fun things to do, right here in your own backyard. You could be looking to change up the routine with your spouse or longtime partner, or you could be involved in a newly budding relationship and want to truly impress. Creating a new, exciting, perfect date night experience can be a little bit tricky, especially if you want it to be one of a kind.

Say no more! We've compiled a few date night ideas to consider for you, regardless of your situation. Check these out, and make sure you tell us how it went in the comments below!

Date 1: Paint Night

If you're looking to get a bit arty with your significant other, say no more! We've got the perfect date night for you. Paint Nights have been sweeping the country for a few years now and it's a great way to get to bond with someone. It's also a perfect date idea if you're still getting to know somebody. 

The Painted Conch offers almost daily Paint Nights, so be sure to check their schedule to see what theme you'd like to go for. You can select an "Easy" option with a simpler design, or something more advanced if you're looking to take your painting to the next level. 

Either before or after, you're bound to have an appetite. Head to Dante's Coal Fired Pizza to commiserate your artistic talents, or lack thereof.
